abstract

This paper is a brief analysis of the data collected from a survey in 2017 involving 1,500 students, aged between 14-18 years. Our purpose was to discover whether they acted differently when dealing with writing or reading texts in their mother language or in foreign language and if they used dictionaries in order to find a word they needed. Analysing concrete extra-lexicographical situations, the survey showed that teenagers still used printed dictionaries for some school work and – as predictable – Google Search for informal interactions. However, they do not know free online dictionaries and do not take advantage of Google advanced research options.
